Newsletter / Produced by The High Calling
Church 4149 960 720

Has your pastor ever visited your workplace? Mentioned the kind of work you do in a sermon? Given you guidance on a tough ethical issue at your job? If so, great. If not, you’re not alone. Many people would like to see more guidance for their 9-5, M-F lives from their Sunday pulpits.

In this newsletter we’ll hear that the call for pastors to equip their people is a biblical one. For those of you who are pastors, we have ten good tips for bridging workplace and worship-place.

Pastors and laypeople alike, the world needs all of us in mission and ministry in the high calling of your daily work. Read on.
